Is Salaah with urine on the garment valid?


Question:

Is Salaah with urine on the garment valid?

Answer:

Any Najasah (filth) on the clothes should immediately be removed. (Tatarkhaniyyah).

However, if one read Salah with urine on the body or clothes then the ruling is as follows:

Urine of humans is Najasah Ghalizah (potent impurity). If the urine on the garment or body is more than the size of a Dirham, which is the size of the hollow of one’s palm, the Salaah will have to be repeated. If the Najasah did not exceed that quantity, then the Salaah will be valid.

 

If the Najasah is Khafifah, (eg: Urine of those animals that are permissible to consume) then the Salaah will be valid if the Najasah did not exceed an area equivalent of quarter of any specific portion of the garment, eg; sleeve, or collar etc.

(Fatawa Mahmudiyyah, Pg: 252, Vol: 5, Farooqiyyah)
